26 November 2010: Winding-Up

In Louisiana right now as Gloria's dad in hospital. Praying for good outcome of heart surgery early next week.

Meantime went on BBC website and mildly surprised to see the story 'Plymouth Argyle Handed Winding-Up Order'. Mildly, because I thought it would happen after England fail to get the 2018 World Cup hosting spot next week. Also see that Peter Ridsdale was in talks, this after being spotted twice in a week in the director's box at consecutive Argyle matches (one home, one away) and the club stating that it was sheer coincidence and he was just attending games.

Why couldn't they just do NCND (neither confirm nor deny)? Why do the current board feel it's both acceptable and necessary to outright lie to the fans and media without even a hint of shame about it? We all knew there was stuff going on. But that's the current board - who last week moved from the original claim of takingf us to the Premiership and 'we don't do failure' down to 'committed to ensuring the survival of the club'. Naturally, no actions to back those words up and now we're up the Pompey creek. And after Pompey got away with it so brazenly earlier in the year, HMRC are after blood.

This won't be pretty.

Fingers crossed for Gloria's dad - mine will be in much the same position within the next two months (heart valve replacement).
